Emily Blunt's marriage is her ''priority''.

The 29-year-old actress tied the knot with John Krasinski, 32, in July 2010, but had to leave to start work on new movie 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen' just one month later.

But despite being on location in Scotland and Morocco while her other half was In America, Emily says they made it work by setting time aside to catch up with each other.

She said: ''We were far from home I guess, but we were so busy working we really didn't think about it much.

''You talk, you email, you do all of that. There is no magic answer. It's just the way anyone else would do it. You do your best and make it a priority.''

The 'Devil Wears Prada' star spent the remainder of her free time getting to know co-stars Ewan McGregor and Kristin Scott Thomas.

She told US Weekly: ''We only had one day off a week, so there was a little local market - they call them souks in Morocco - and we'd go and buy jewellery and like little trinkets. But mostly on the one day off we'd just collapse by the pool!''

With a penchant for pasta, the slim star admits she also has to dedicate time to the gym to work off the extra calories.

She told USA Today: ''It's not that fun. I have to go to the gym to accommodate my eating habits. I'm greedy, and I like to eat so I have to sweat it out the next day. I'd rather live life like that, in extremes, than starving. That makes me sad.

''I quite enjoy exercising now. I used to hate it. I've learned to make friends with it. I don't consider myself one of those skinny-skinny people. I think a lot of people are a bit unhealthy. I've never felt that much pressure.''
